Dr. Abdalla Ahmed Alkhalifa  | Dr. Ehab Ahmed Mohammed
Abstract: Drugs abuse is one of the most disastrous social and health phenomena that the present day society faces. The world has been afflicted with drugs addiction, which represents a threat to security and stability as well as it causes loss of human souls. The world has become a global village and this resulted in shared customs and behaviors, and with that, the phenomenon of drugs use has spread. Each society or part of society is inseparable from the rest of the world, interacts with, and is affected by it. Accordingly, no human society is spared the spread of this devastating phenomenon. The society, then, has to play its role in preventing and fighting the risk and danger of addiction and that its dreadful influence should be explained to youth, family, and heath and intellectual orientation campaigns for the different segments of the society should be held. Every available facility should be utilized to fight this dangerous trend, whether it is visual, audio or printed media or through making legislations that prohibit and punish it and adopting very strict measures against its spread. The society sectors should work collaboratively and coordinate with the other countries as for security issues benefiting from each other's experiences in fighting and controlling drugs. The reasons for drugs use are different from one country to another and from one society to another within the same country. Among the major reasons are weak personality, weak religious deterrent and the easy accessibility of drugs, the influence of friends and peers, lack of entertainment facilities, use of drugs for health purposes, for sexual bliss, family troubles, blind imitation to others and the spread of unemployment. The use of drugs especially among youths has several threats. It is like throwing a stone at a stagnant pond where the circle enlarges. In the beginning the danger of drugs use is restricted to the user but gradually it includes the family, friends, school, the youth gatherings and eventually the whole society. The negative effects of drugs on the personal level is physical and psychological and on the society level, we find security, economical and religious, and political as well as political violations.
